his very short-lived series followed the Seated Liberty design of the era. Twenty Cent Pieces were struck from 1875 to 1878 with 1877 and 1878 being rare proof-only Twenty Cent Pieces. Philadelphia, Carson City and the San Francisco Mint all struck Twenty Cent Pieces.
The 1876-CC is the ‘key’ to a complete Twenty Cent Piece collection. 10,000 coins were struck but almost all were melted at the Carson City Mint. Today, a decent example of this rare Twenty Cent Piece easily fetches $100,000!
Bright flashy surfaces with heavy white frost on the design and a touch of peripheral toning. Excellent eye appeal.
A lovely example of this short-lived 'type' with satiny white luster and nice clean surfaces.
FS-302. Misplaced Date, Repunched Mintmark. Sharply struck with original surfaces and rich satiny white luster.
Lightly frosted devices with highly reflective fields. A nice original piece with light gold and turquoise toning.
High end for the grade with reflective golden-gray surfaces and no significant marks or hairlines.
A proof-only issue and the final date in the series with just 600 minted. This is a nearly perfect example with deep reflective surfaces displaying rich tones of turquoise, lavender, burnt-orange, and gold.
